Westlife – You Raise Me Up lyrics

When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

[Instrumental break]

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.

You raise me up... To more than I can be.

    This song has personal meaning to me, but I think the songwriters had something like this in mind. Over the years I have learned to lean on God when I am facing hardship or heartbreak. When I am troubled and anxious, I find a place to sit quietly and pour out my heart to God. He is my strength when I am weary. He lifts my spirit and calms the stormy seas. When I stand on His shoulders, I can see things from His perspective and know that I can handle anything that comes my way because He is with me. This has always been a great comfort to me. He has never failed to raise me up to face my challenges in life.

    This is the kind of songs that makes me cry. It really encourages me to have more faith. And sometimes it also reminds me of my uncle. Actually. He died. I really felt sorry for my cousins. He didn't die cuz of a sickness he was shot. :( and he could've given much more fun times with his daughters. What would you feel if you lost someone so precious?!. :(
    Nothing is much more powerful than your love ones?. The ones who make you happy?. The ones who.
